I wiggled 12% into my base. I went in with a whole package ask though, and they adjusted a few things to get me closer. They met me more than halfway.

That’s great - good for you! Thank you for sharing. Brilliant strategy to organize a package first.

What role and level? It depends on where you end up in the pay range of the role that you’re applying to. If they’re already giving you a base that’s at the top of the pay range then you won’t be able to negotiate much

I haven’t gotten an offer, I was more curious if there’s a trend in “wiggle room” when it comes to base salary.

I received a message on LinkedIn from an internal recruiter at a company that sounded intriguing. Would it be bad form to ask for more information about the role and about comp up front?
